I've been asked when I release the next stable version. Sorry. I haven't been able to take time for pre-release test [s]because I spent too much time for retro RPGs[/s]. Actually YSFLIGHT grew feature-rich a lot more than I was originally expecting and it is very difficult to manually test many of these features. So, one of the effort I am doing is to automate such tests. I tried several different ways, but the latest scripting is working nicely. For example, now I can automatically select all of the Simulation menus or I can automatically select all of the default aircrafts and fields in the new-flight dialog to make sure the program does not crash. It is amazing to see my test scripts go through many test items for different versions of YSFLIGHT in a few minutes that were taking more than an hour.

I really don't want to sound rude here but...

Okay now I have to say it. (This is NOT an attack on Soji) You can't take the time to actually test out the builds you release, which leads to more bugs being introduced into the game. So you develop scripts to test YS for you. While it's ingenious it's also incredibly lazy. Not only that but deciding to develop mobile versions of YS? You can barely handle the "workload" of the three PC versions as it is! The game has spent over twenty years in development (on and off since 1995). I understand you're a one man show but it's really becoming obvious that you just don't give a damn about it.

With the last test build you introduced textured smoke, got peoples attention too! It looked nice and all, but you introduced another bug that totally destroyed the cockpit view. With the introduction of bling that nobody really asked for instead of actually optimizing the game for the more expansive hardware you're starting to worry me. With Space Engineers fresh in my mind too, they added things nobody asked for while ignoring the problems with the game that could be fixed to make it a better experience for all.

HQ has capable coders that i'd imagine would be all too happy to take the baton and make YS something that stands out. We don't need textured smoke, better shadows, or heaven forbid light bloom if that's ever introduced. What we NEED is to see this game turn from a mess of garbled code into the iconic game that it used to be. We've had twenty years of sitting back and asking, it's time you let the community take the reigns.

I honestly apologize if this post sounded rude, it's just been boiling up inside for a while and I had to get it out.

  • Separated ILS view (default F6) and Tower view (default F8).
  • Looks like a standard definition of magnetic variation is West=minus and East=plus. I was calculating opposite. I reversed it to align with the standard. Thank you for pointing it out!
  • Fly -> Select Aircraft -> Fly -> Retry Previous Flight was resetting the aircraft to the first player aircraft. Now it will start in the last aircraft.
  • Auto-Test script

F6 and F8? Why not F6 and F9? F7 and F8 have recently been different outside view settings (fixed heading relative to the map vs fixed relative to the plane). Will we lose one of those to regain what was F9? Will we be able to reassign tower view to F9 and restore F6/7/8/9 to proper views?

EDIT: If we lose Fixed relative to the plane outside view, that will basically be the breaking point for me. I will not even try to adapt to losing that ability.

You should be able to, currently you can reassign your viewpoint key assignment to a different keystroke.

I just checked, and in the current test version, F6 is ILS, F7 and F8 work as they have, and F9 is tower view. In other words, we're back to the old-style assignments with split ILS and Tower. The Captain did good on that one. :)
EDIT: Also F7/F8 cycle between the two styles of exterior view, making having both keys for that purpose a little redundant anyway.

Just curious, what FPS are you getting (if you've checked)?

Very glad the viewpoints are back to what they were prior to version 2015.

Strange, but on Linux by default F6 is ILS, F8 is tower view, and F7 cycle between the two styles of exterior view.

Here are defaults key assignments (exported from "YSFlight 20180422 Test" on Linux):

On Linux by default key assignments stored as ../Documents/YSFLIGHT.COM/YSFLIGHT/config/ctlassign.cfg, that created on first changes in key assignments settings.

But if look inside distributed file ../Documents/YSFLIGHT.COM/config/ctlassign.cfg, then I see that its look like you got on Windows:

Code: Select all

AXS 0 0 AILERON 
AXS 0 1 ELEVATOR 
AXS 0 2 THROTTLE 
AXS 0 3 RUDDER 
AXS M 0 TURRETHDG

So, maybe on Windows "YSFlight 20180422 Test" got this key assignments by default?

:idea: Patrick, try delete on your Windows PC key assignments files ../Documents/YSFLIGHT.COM/config/ctlassign.cfg and ../Documents/YSFLIGHT.COM/YSFLIGHT/config/ctlassign.cfg and restart "YSFlight 20180422 Test"!

@u2fly
Well, of course. I didn't think of that. Well, then, that explains that. Actually, I like that because now I can set F8 as tower view and F9 to switch between aircraft targets in tower view, which I think was how it was in the good old days.

@Turbofan
Frame rates are horrible for me in the stock Hawaii map on all versions. I get 40fps on my Hawaii map, but only 10-20 in the stock map at max graphics settings (Ctrl > 3). I don't want to ask questions. ;)
EDIT: I installed my Hawaii map on the test version and I get 8-10 fps parked at HNL terminal.

Anybody else can confirm that in "YSFlight 20180422 Test" still exist issue with flight control in "Landing practice" mode -- impossible to control "ailerons" and "elevator"?

I detect it since first 2017 test versions and in 20180422 this issue still exist for me (I use Linux on own PC).

  • I think this time I really fixed the magnetic heading and true heading consistency. By the way, I made the sign back to the previous. (In YSFLIGHT West is positive.)
  • ARTCC was not giving higher than 10000ft, which was awkward for a long cross country in a jet airplane. Now it gives up to the altitude specified in the aircraft data (Actually, the descending instruction was supposed to be given +6000, +3000, and then +1500 of the destination airport, but for some reason the current ATC skips +3000. I'm looking into the problem.)

P.S.: Still detect issue with flight control in "Landing practice" mode -- impossible to control "ailerons" and "elevator" (at least, on Linux).

Anybody know actual Soji's e-mail? Tell me in PM, because his old e-mail look like not working.

As a once active member of the YS community, I don't know one single person who even uses these features.

There are some underlying big issues with this game (and have been for years) and for whatever reason continues not to address. I'll never understand the logic.
